.columns were being turned into this book.

RABBI YERACHMIEL RONESS was born and
raised in Montreal, Canada. After serving as a
congregational Rabbi and as a Hillel Director in New
York City, he made Aliyah in 1983 with his wife Dina
and their five young children.
Ever since, Rabbi Roness has dedicated his life to
promoting Aliyah. First, as Rabbi of the Jewish
Agency’s Absorption Centers, and subsequently as
the executive director of the Aloh Naaleh organization.
Between the years 2012-2020 Rabbi Roness' weekly "Chizuk V'Idud"
column provided readers of the OU's "Torah Tidbits" publication, with
motivational words of ‘Chizuk’ for Olim, and ‘Idud’ (encouragement) for
future Olim. This present collection, culled from those original articles,
will provide additional readers with the opportunity to be inspired by
Rabbi Roness' thoughts and reflections.
